Still on hiatus

An update on what’s happening to my dear dad. According to this article (which I’m going to paste onto this entry later), he suffered minor injuries. He was merely a passenger in one of the three cars.

He was with his friend, on his way back from Kuala Belait, back to Bandar. Another car, a Toyota Kijang, had a tyre puncture while carrying an overload of A4 paper. It collided with the car that my dad was in, and another car from behind had hit them as well.

My dad’s friend, the driver, had suffered a few fractures. A lot of physical injuries. My dad escaped with nothing. Or so everyone thought. After a hard night in the ward of the Suri Seri Begawan hospital, my dad’s suffering from lower abdominal pains. We all thought it was just the impact of the seatbelt he had on during the accident.

Apparently not. To cut a long story short, he underwent operation for two hours at 10 this morning. It’s so hard to see your own father, who rarely gets sick and gets admitted into a hospital, without crying. He went into the O.R. (Grey’s Anatomy is educational after all. ;P), with fear in his eyes.

The surgeons reported to my mom that he had two tears in his small intestine and it wasn’t so damaged that the doctor didn’t have to cut off a part of it. He just had to apply a few stitches, and he was good to go.

He’s now in the Intensive Care Unit, and the last time I saw him, which was barely an hour ago, he was talking about the Manchester United match against Chelsea. I promised him I’ll watch it for him. Anyone have any idea when that match is?

By the way, thank you for your well-wishes. Keep him in your prayers for me, thank you.

Oh, here’s the article.

Three-vehicle collision at Seria bypass
By Liza Mohd


Seria Fire and Rescue personnel at the scene of the accident.

An Indonesian driver lost control of his van along the Seria bypass yesterday morning and caused a three-car collision, which involved two local men and a female driver. The driver was heading to Kuala Belait from Bandar Seri Begawan when he lost control of his vehicle, due to a tyre puncture, and collided with a vehicle from the opposite lane, which led to another rear-end collision with a third vehicle on the same lane.

A local Chinese driver, whose car was run over, suffered head and chest injuries as well as a broken back. He is currently receiving treatment at Suri Seri Begawan Hospital.

Meanwhile, the other two drivers and a passenger, who suffered minor injuries, were also treated at Suri Seri Begawan Hospital.

Seria Fire and Rescue personnel were deployed at the scene, led by Commander Pengiran Rosli bin Pengiran Haji Ahmad.

Police are currently investigating the cause of the accident.

    Rrrrrrrr, yes, we were told that too. Once they found out he might have some internal injuries, he was send to the O.R. in less than an hour. It felt like 15 minutes at the time. My aunt told us that if there were any more delay, he could have faced a much more serious problem.

    War, wahey! It’s on my birthday! Haha, I’ll tell him that. I’ll also tell him about the match with Watford. I bet he’ll say, “Eh, manang Manchester tu.” Yea, he’s an avid fan of Manchester United.

  20. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your dad. I know how you feel sweetie, when your superman is suddenly kena inject liquid kryptonite (sp?). You just feel absolutely helpless and frighten for his very life.

    Insya-Allah, your father will be well. Allah is with him all the way. :)

    I posted a poem up on Brunei Ummah called ‘Allah Knows Best’ and indeed He does.

    Never is a believer stricken with discomfort, hardship, illness, grief or even with mental worry except that his/her sins are expiated thereby” The above Hadith was related in Sahih Muslim, Book 032, Number 6242

    Rest assured that Allah loves your dad, that is why He is testing him with such trial. :)

    Livie, there was a lawyer who called me up, telling me he could help, but I got advised by my aunts and uncles and colleagues of my dad that I should be more careful. I don’t know what the department my dad is in is going to do about it, though.

    Manz, he’s good to go. :)

    Nees, thanks, sweets.
